We moved to Whispers in 2008 and before we even set foot in the house we knew we wanted to be in this special house because of the location. No matter what work had to be done we would change it, what we couldnt do, was change the location. We worked hard in the early years to do the renovations; meanwhile we made many friends and have been fortunate to have lovely neighbours. The road is peaceful and also used by walkers who enjoy everything that nature provides. The gardens of the cottages are always a joy to see when summer arrives, especially with the stream running in front of the cottages. We will be sad to leave but we have new plans for the future.
Lumley Road is a semi-rural lane running alongside Peter Pond, a natural wildlife habitat and conservation area, within walking distance of the thriving village of Emsworth, with day to day shopping and easy access to the foreshore with its coastal walks and pretty harbourside

Many people move to Emsworth to enjoy the best of town, country and coastal life. It was once a fishing village that was known for boatbuilding, rope making and oyster farming. Many of these traditions are long gone, but Emsworth has retained much of its old-fashioned charm.The many artists who live and work here throw open their studio doors to show their work at the annual Emsworth Art Trail while the Emsworth Horticultural Society holds an annual fair over the August Bank Holiday, which includes demonstrations of ancient crafts such as glass blowing, wood turning, falconry and beekeeping.
